Bug Description

If you click on any drop down on natty in unity-2d in Thunderbird 13/13.0.1, the drop down doesn't appear. We fixed a similar issue in bug 1010466 for oneiric and precise. We pushed a fix out for natty as well, but it appears to be incomplete. You can test the updated thunderbird packages from ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-security/ppa

Test case:
1. Launch thunderbird from the Unity launcher
2. Edit -> Account Settings
3. Click on account actions, it should show a drop down of choices, but doesn't

I should mention this was tested on 11.04/i386 in qemu-kvm on a precise host.

I should also mention that I launched from the terminal and not the Launcher, so please disregard my comment.

So the previous natty fix was not enough?
The branch looks fine to me, but I asked Gerry to review it as well. So we'll have it reviewed and tested till Monday, and we'll probably start the update procedure again for natty, if needed.

Jamie, do you need the package update to be handled by the dx team or do you just need an upstream code review and hack on the diff? The packagers will probably not get to it before monday but acking the diff should be easier

Just an ack from the DX team is fine.

The previous fix was not enough for 11.04 (it is readily reproducible).

@Jamie: that was discussed on IRC, upstream is not interested by maintaining a natty upstream branch at this point, that was a very early version of unity-2d but they are fine getting that fix merged in the distribution since it seems correct so you guys can be considered it acked by dx and desktop teams

As we have an upstream ACK on the code, we'll get this uploaded and tested later today.
